Saying goodbye to Colorado: 3/7 & 3/8

Time is winding down for my Colorado Experience.  Wednesday the 6th was a bright, sun-shiny day.  I had plans to take kitesurfing lessons, but they were postponed to Thursday.  So, I decided to complete my second class, rather than go out to the mountain.  Thursday, however, was a good day spent kite surfing on Lake […]

ASPEN 3/3-3/5

I was in Aspen once before in March of 2012, actually Snowmass, but whatever. Last year, a 4-6 inch snowfall was a big deal and Aspen had been doing better than forecasts.   I grabbed a room, settled-in for a 4-6 inch snowfall and went to sleep super early.   Hearing the ruckus over at Zane’s Tavern, I fought my intrigue because […]

Vail Weekend March 1 & 2

A wonderful weekend was on-tap at Vail.  The Burton U.S. Open was scheduled to take place on Friday and Saturday, all sorts of silly events were associated…..oh, and it was snowing! I got to the hill in typical late fashion, allowing everyone to slay the open terrain.  That late arrival did secure me a cozy […]

Arapahoe Basin 2/28/13

Why?  Just because.  That being said, I asked myself the same question!  After the silliness at Steamboat, I wasn’t expecting much of a comparison.  A-Basin was No Comparison as its snowfall has been very unreliable.   Apparently when I went to A-Basin on Thursday it was snowing like a champ at Vail.  It is amazing […]

Steamboat Powder Day! 2/27/2013

Today was a rare early rising for me. but with a two-hour drive in-store it had to be done. So there is this thing about Steamboat Springs just getting stellar powder.  I’ve seen travel shows that highlight Steamboat and Powder was a theme.  I’ve been here for a week, during a decent storm cycle, and […]

Keystone, Colorado 2/26/2013

Woke-up to frigid Temps and an unproductive cloud-cover today.  Original considerations were to go to Copper Mountain.  Unfortunately, despite weather reports hinting at some sort of snowfall over Colorado, radar wasn’t showing any love for the upper-elevations.  I bailed on Copper and made a mid-day trek to Keystone.  This was a good opportunity to use my Epic […]

Another day in alpine bliss. Sunday February 24th. Vail, Co.

On Saturday night another storm rolled-in with more snow potential. Being a good boy, I went to bed early with the intention of getting up early. Well, I woke up late as always.  Those who know me….I’m not selective with my tardiness, it follows me everywhere. I left the house at 645 and there was […]

Settled in. Feb 21-22

Leaving Altoona, PA on Monday afternoon meant I got to drive two long days. 9 hours on Monday and 15 hours on Tuesday got me to Denver, close enough. I arrived at destination #1, Breckenridge, CO on Wednesday evening with a storm rolling it. The storm eventually dropped 22 in the Midwest.  At Breckenridge, it […]
